SC student surprised with $50K scholarship from rapper Drake

MIAMI, FL (WIS) - A Denmark, SC student is the toast of social media after not only earning a big-time scholarship - but it was given to her by none other than hip-hop superstar Drake.

In Instagram posts from Monday, Destiny James was picked to win a $50,000 scholarship toward her education at the University of Miami.

The scholarship was presented by James by the rapper who was at Miami Senior High School filming a music video. James wrote in an Instagram post that she's just a South Carolina girl trying to make God's plan work for her.

This happened today. I applied for scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it.

In other posts, she showed Drake congratulating her and giving her a kiss on the cheek.
